What Teens Want You To Know About The State Of Sex Ed

Remember high school sex ed? If you were lucky enough to get any curriculum on sex, it probably consisted of a couple of slides of diseased genitals, an explanation of wet dreams and maybe a real-life demo of a condom rolled onto a banana.

If you found this brief and cursory explanation of human sexuality absolutely useless when it came to navigating relationships with real, live people, you’re not alone. A new global analysis finds that students experience sex ed as out of touch, insensitive, negative and often exclusionary.

Students also reported that teachers were poorly trained and often visibly embarrassed to be presenting the material, which doesn’t exactly send the message that sex is a healthy and acceptable part of life.

Sharing pictures with romantic partners is a natural part of any relationship. It’s important , however, that you are doing so safely, responsibly, and appropriately. Exchanging explicit (nude) images is not only uncool, it’s illegal. It can get you in trouble with your parents, your school, and even the police. Think twice before taking an explicit picture of yourself, or sending one of yourself—or someone else—to another person. You never know where it could end up or what kind of trouble you could find yourself in.
